The suites also come equipped with private temperature-controlled swimming pools that offer you and your loved one exclusive and private relaxation. Take a dip while you stare out into the abyss of the dunes that will make time dissipate.

Guests are provided with camel trekking to the perfect sundowner spot, which comes with Champagne and snacks. The second desert activity is one of their choosing. This could mean horseback riding, nature walks or even archery and falconry to choose from. Bliss.
